"JACK-IN-THE-PULPIT" FLOWER FORM VASE
engraved L.C.T. T809
16½ in. (41.9 cm) high
7⅝ in. (19.4 cm) diameter of fan
Overall in very good condition. When viewed firsthand, the vase displays exuberant iridescence to the rigorously ruffled fan. The glass displays with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and minor surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The glass surfaces with some occasional extremely fine and minor surface scratches, consistent with age and gentle handling. The interior of the vase with some light surface soiling visible in the stem and foot with some possible calcification, not visually detractive. An extremely elegant and delicate vase with great presence and strong iridescence.
